Create a secure, stable EHR Infrastructure
When healthcare organizations are considering a new EHR solution, or upgrading an existing implementation, planning for the stability and reliability of your supporting infrastructure is key to overall performance and availability. Even the best and most highly ranked EHR solutions simply cannot deliver effective clinical data without this solid foundation!
Comport Healthcare Solutions is unique in our comprehensive understanding of the EHR to the Edge. For many years we have designed and deployed infrastructure to support EHR’s – including migrations & upgrades. We have strong relationships with the major EHR providers and understand certification requirements. Many of our experienced technical team have been responsible for running EHR’s and PACS in the prior lives. Our lab in Ramsey, NJ has certified infrastructure solutions for Epic and MEDITECH. We help you avoid preventable issues – we have seen recommendations for solutions that simply won’t work.
Below are some important factors in EHR Infrastructure
With continuous regulatory compliances, cyber attacks, and patient expectations to safeguard their clinical data, security is a major consideration. Increasing data access points and servers, as well as an uptick in the volume of information and diversity of data creates a need for visibility, control and response. Network security solutions from Aruba secure all “things” – corporate, IoT and BYOD – wired and wirelessly, enforce wired and wireless policy, and streamline network security management. As part of EHR implementation planning, Comport’s team of experts will conduct security evaluations to ensure remote connectivity and protection of endpoints. End-user training is also available to assess possible weak points of entry.
Better Patient Outcomes
When health care providers have access to complete and accurate information, patients receive better medical care. EHR solutions enable you to transform patient care delivery by accelerating electronic care processes, interoperability for care coordination, and quality measuring, reporting, and improvement. Given the central importance of EHRs across clinical and business functions, we understand that downtime is not an option.
Implementing a new or upgrading an existing EHR infrastructure solution typically involves a combination of hardware (traditional and virtual) and software. Hyperconverged computing solutions may offer lower cost options and scale easily for simplicity and efficiency. Comport understands the certification requirements for the major EHR’s and offers only best-of-breed technology. We work with you to determine your best technical and financial options.
Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity
HIPAA requires all healthcare providers to develop contingency plans for disaster recovery, including data backup and emergency operations. With electronic health records (EHRs) at the center of patient care, continuous access to patient’s medical data is absolutely critical.
Backup solutions from Veeam and Commvault offer physical and virtual backups off site and replicate VMs (virtual machines) without the cost and complexity of building and maintaining an offsite infrastructure. Simply choose a service provider and point your backups or replica jobs to the cloud — cloud-based disaster recovery and offsite backup has never been so easy. We have backup options for MEDITECH BridgeHead users as well.
ComportSecure extends data protection for healthcare organizations with off-site Backup-as-a-Service and Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service for Veeam users. ComportSecure’s Managed Infrastructure Services are available at your data center or our Tier 3+ off-site location. We customize to meet your needs and budget, with monthly billing options.
